About the role:
Aurora Solar is a fast-growing Series C company on a mission to create a future of solar energy for all. Aurora makes the software that is enabling society to transition to a world powered by solar power. It’s our goal to have every solar installation in the world pass through our software, which has already been used to design millions of solar projects. Named one of “The Best Places To Work in 2021” by and awarded #1 Solar Software platform by Solar Power World, Aurora is disrupting the energy industry and changing the course of history.     
As a member of the Technical Operations team at Aurora, you will own the architectural foundation of how our software systems connect to humans and services alike, creating resilient systems that are reliably and consistently deployed across our various technology platforms.  Whether you serve as the subject matter expert for native cloud deployments (specifically AWS, via EKS or Fargate) or more managed platforms (Heroku and Segment to name a few) you will be working closely with the engineering team at large.
We are a passionate and diverse team that aspires to be the best place for the best people and we’re looking for talented individuals to accelerate our exponential growth as we continue to scale. If you are looking for a stimulating and fulfilling role, come join us!

What you'll do:

  • With a primary focus on either native or managed platforms, work internal and external with TechOps teams to improve the consistency, reliability, and release velocity of our overall development lifecycle.
  • Developing novel software where needed (such as Terraform providers or API integrations) to interact with managed services where the declarative Infrastructure-as-Code model is insufficient 
  • Educate and evangelize best practices through a combination of written documentation, internal presentations, and proactive assistance.
  • Assist fellow TechOps members in ongoing compliance efforts and iterative improvements, across all technology stacks, that affect the security and reliability of technology throughout the organization.

What we value:

  • Working comprehension of software development (e.g. web applications, mobile)
  • 12-factor App, Infrastructure-as-Code, or similar experiences across a number of different services
  • Technical communication skills, both written and verbal, at the presentational level
  • Prior experiences with compliance activities (SOC2, FedRAMP, HITRUST)
  • Prior experiences with engineering program leadership
  • Service-oriented architecture patterns, including overall development and service observability

Aurora is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive workforce of people who believe in and are passionate about creating a future of solar energy for all. We are an equal opportunity employer, we welcome and consider qualified applicants regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, age, national origin, citizenship, pregnancy status, veteran status, or any other differences. We encourage you to apply even if you believe that you do not meet all of the above criteria!
